Bakenkhons

(fl. 1300–1220)
   High priest of Amunat Thebes. He came from a priestly family, being the son of Roma, second prophet of Amun, and Amenemope. His lengthy biography is inscribed on a block statue, now in the Munich Museum. During his youth, he served in the stable of Sety I and then succesively held the offices of fourth, third, and second prophets of Amun during the reign of Ramesses II until being promoted to the post of high priest, first prophet of Amun. He supervised the king’s building of the temple of Karnak. He was succeeded by Roma-Roy, probably a close relation. A second high priest of Amun, Bakenkhons held office during the reigns of Sethnakhte and Ramesses III. Astela of his dated to year 4 of Sethnakhte was discovered in 2007 during clearance of the alley of ram-headed sphinxes between the temples of Karnak and Luxor.
